  • Anne Frank was a Jewish girl living in Amsterdam
    in Holland. On 12th June 1942 her parents gave
    her a small red and white tartan diary for her
    13th birthday. She named her diary Kitty.
  • On July 6th 1942, Anne and her family had to go
    into hiding, for fear that they might be sent to
    a concentration camp by the Germans. For over 2
    years, Anne wrote about her life and those of
    seven other people in hiding with her, including
    her parents and her sister. She also wrote about
    the war, and what her hopes were for the future.

  • On the 4th of August, 1944, somebody told the
    Germans where Anne and her family were hiding.
    The secret annexe where she hid was raided, and
    Anne and her family were caught. Annes diary was
    left behind. Anne was sent to a concentration
    camp called Bergen Belsen, where she died.

  • Annes father, Otto Frank, who had been
    imprisoned in a different concentration camp
    called Auschwitz, survived the war. After the war
    ended, he returned to Amsterdam, where he found
    Annes diary. He decided to publish Annes diary,
    in order to honour his daughters wish to be a
    writer.

Extracts
Our little room looked very bare at first with
nothing on the walls but thanks to daddy who had
brought my film star collection and picture
postcards on beforehand, and with the aid of a
paste-pot and brush, I have transformed the wall
into one gigantic picture. This makes it look
much more cheerful.

Ive only dismal and depressing news for you
today. Our many Jewish friends are being taken
away by the dozen. These people are treated by
the Gestapo without a shred of decency, being
loaded into cattle trucks and sent to
Westerbrook, the big Jewish camp in Drente.

  • Twice they rattled at the bookcase, then there
    was nothing, the footsteps withdrew, we were
    saved so far. A shiver seemed to pass from one to
    another, I heard someones teeth chattering,
    no-one said a word.
